All of the following inspection services include a detailed report, with photos. The pricing is based on an estimated 3,000 square foot home. Pricing will vary based on size of the home and location.

Additional charge of $25 for every 500 sqft over 3,000sqft. 

*All prices are starting prices and are subject to change without notice. Price will be confirmed upon final booking.

Basic Warranty Inspection

$300   |    1-1.5 hrs

Our basic warranty inspection centers on inspecting the warranted items, major equipment (furnace, air conditioner, etc.), ventilation appliances (measuring bath fan flows), and any reported issues by the homeowner, including cosmetic issues.  We ask that the homeowner assist by marking cosmetic issues with tape/stickers before the inspection.

Full Inspection

$425   |    1.5-2.5 hrs

In addition to the basic warranty inspection items, we will examine all outlets, fixtures, and appliances, including a CO test of all gas appliances and temperature test of the Furn/AC.  Our attic inspection will look for signs of leaks, pests, and any other visible anomalies.  We will examine the outside of the home to identify drainage and other issues which can compromise the integrity of the home.  Our inspector will examine the roof, if safely accessible, as well as the overall structure of the home. This is basically a full pre-purchase inspection typically used to identify issues that help a buyer make a purchase decision. 

 

Full Inspection with

Blower-door & IR scan

$550   |       2-3 hrs

In addition to the full inspection items, we will conduct a Blower Door and Infrared scan of your home to address any comfort issues you may be experiencing.  The infrared scan of the home will identify cold/hot spots in the home and where the air is leaking.  A blower door test will determine how tight the home is, how much conditioned air you are losing to the outside, and how much mechanical fresh air exchange the home needs.  Most mechanical fresh air systems are set up improperly or have never been explained to the homeowner.  We will provide you that insight as well.
